    I just had a Dendrobium cuthbertsonii cross start blooming in a compot. Five seedlings have bloomed so far. Two are a dark pink / white bicolor, two are red and one is a red / orange bicolor. Just below the compot are the parents of the cross.

    No simple Mendelian genetics for cuthbertsonii.

    Gorgeous! When did you deflask them? I have a compot that I deflasked a year ago and they seem to be similar size to yours.

    Hi Marni, here are a few that I have bloomed from what I believe Is the same cross (or a similar from you). Not pictured, but also have had one or two solid reds and a few solid oranges.
